Trying AGAIN! Hopefully for the last time

I have been smoking since I was 12 years old and drinking since I was about 15. Both my parents smoked and drank, although they have both been quit smoking for about 30 years now, they still drink on occasion but not like they use to. I can't count the number of times I have attempted to quit, at least 50. Sometimes I make a couple of hours, other times, I make a couple of days, other times, a couple of weeks, a couple of months. The longest is about 4 months. I have had COPD since 2005. I also have an alcohol issue. On November 7, 2018, I quit smoking and drinking for what I am praying for will be my last time. My husband still smokes and drinks so that doesn't make it easy for me but I can't use that as an excuse anymore. I am also a closet smoker. Other than my husband and my daughter, no one in my family or at work knows that I smoke (or drink for that matter)This is my time to quit and I have to own that. I have been smoke and alcohol free for 6 days now. This time I have talked to my doctor. I am reading all kinds of success stories from people that have quit both smoking and drinking. I really hope I can do it this time but I know it's all up to me. A friend once told me that you won't quit until you are really determined to do it. I think I am totally determined this time. My health is suffering so much for all the bad choices I have made it my life and it's time for me to take back control. I hope my husband joins me someday, hopefully if I can be successful this time that will inspire him to also quit, but that's his choice, my choice is to beat this damn addiction once and for all.
